My rear view mirror cracked I purchased a new one and I am trying to install it My problem is in finding all the screws that keep the door on I found one on the far left top after removing a panel. Then I found another behind the door handle. Everything else seems to be sealed except for the light on the door but its way too fragile to get a screwdriver in there without cracking something, (I tried) can you help me?

Re: 2002 Ford F-150 drivers rear view mirror
The door pane is held on for the most part by plastic christmas tree shaped clips all along the door's edge, a plastic putty knife works ok to release them but there is a special tool, there are about 10 of then and they can be a bugger to release the first time. Be very careful not to damage the door panel they are very expensive.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
Exterior Mirror Glass
Removal NOTE: Exterior mirror glass is serviceable only on vehicles built after July of 2001.

Has the mirror previously been capable of providing a view of the left lane?
If it did not, the "clicking" sound is simply an indicator informing the user that the angle limit has been reached, the mirror will not travel any further.
Simply purchase a pair of stick on Convex mirrors, they are about 1.5" in diameter,they do the job perfectly. I know this because I've got them on my Protege5 mirrors.
Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.
Position the inner edge or the exterior rear view mirror glass to its maximum travel.
WARNING: Place a shop towel between the exterior rear view mirror glass and the hand to avoid personal injury in the instance of glass breakage. Grasp the outboard edge of the exterior rear view mirror glass and pull outward.
